Is there another golden-voiced homeless man out there?
Alex Lambert, a shy Texan known for having one of the best singing voices on last season’s American Idol, writes in a series of Tweets that he’s been “Sleepin’ on the street” since wrapping the Web-based series If I Can Dream in October.
“Alright so I didn’t want to bring my person (sic) life to my fans but I’m about to freak out if I don’t tell yall the truth!” he wrote in the wee hours of Tuesday morning before dropping the bombshell: “Ever since IICD ended I’ve been kinda homless! Sleepin on the street and behind buildings.”
